You properly know how to do a search type in a word and wait for a list of mainly useless information. Only a few of the pages in a long list will contain what you are looking for. This of course takes time and you have to visit the site to find out if the content is relevant to what you are looking for. Most search engines have an advanced system to search for information.
Searches are useful in that you can add a word or words to the search and those words are listed somewhere on the page that is then listed. An example of this could be
Search + huts
This would do a search for pages containing both search and huts. Hopefully it should list this site near or at the top of the list!
Searches too are useful in that some words have two or more meanings so you exclude those from the search. An example of this could be music - soul This would do a search for music which does not contain soul. OR retrieves pages that includes either word A or word B, uppercase OR between words, an example of this could be music rock OR classical Some search engines if you put will search their pages to see who is linking to you have a go try it! See who is linking to your site.
text:text Finds pages that contain specified text in any part of the page other than an image tag, link, or URL. The search text:searchhuts would find all pages with the term searchhuts in them.
title:text Finds pages that contain the specified word or phrase in the page title (which appears in the title bar of most browsers).
The search title: search would find pages with search in the title.
url:text Finds pages with a specific word or phrase in the URL. Use url:searchhuts to find all pages on all servers that have the word searchhut in the host name, path, or filename - the complete URL, in other words.
